A new investigation has launched in the death of a popular social media influencer after allegations of botched police work. Lauren Smith-Fields, 23, died of what has been ruled as an accidental overdose of Fentanyl, prescription medication, and alcohol.
A 911 was called by a man Smith-Fields met through a dating app. Matthew LaFountain told police that he woke up the morning following a date, and saw Smith-Fields not breathing while “blood was coming out of her right nostril.”
The victim’s family attorney, Darnell Crosland, is pushing for DNA testing after claiming “a semen-filled condom and bloody bedsheets” found at the scene were allegedly compromised by Bridgeport Police Department.
